Grand Challenge Scholars Program

 

In 2008, the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) identified 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering in the 21st Century. The Grand Challenges are a call to action and serve as a focal point for society's attention to opportunities and challenges affecting our quality of life. To prepare students to be the generation that solves the grand challenges facing society in this century, the NAE developed the Grand Challenge Scholars Program.
